George Estes to head KGMS Foxes

Pacing the sidelines this season as head coach for the King George Middle School Foxes will be a new, yet familiar face.  
George Estes, longtime King George resident, local home-builder, and an active member in the community for many years, has taken the reigns of the middle school program following the departure of Alex Fisher earlier his year.

Fisher, who presided over the Foxes’s most successful season since 1977 last year with an impressive 6-1 record, recently assumed the responsibilities of athletic director at the Fredericksburg Christian Academy.
With an athletic resume replete with more than 20 years of coaching experience at many levels, and in numerous sports, Coach Estes is cognizant of the success the team enjoyed in 2008 and is committed to seeing it continue.
“Last season this team made a serious impact.” Estes continues, “I want to do my utmost to ensure that it was not a one-time thing, but the beginning of a proud tradition.”
A proud tradition is something the program has lacked for years, but with the continued growth of the King George Youth Athletic Association (KGYAA) — the de facto football “feeder system” in which Estes serves as vice-president — and the excitement surrounding Coach Jeff Smith and the high school program, the future seems bright for football overall in King George.
Coach Estes believes that in order to secure and maintain that proud tradition, the program must continue to cultivate the local talent emanating from the KGYAA, develop it thoroughly, and see it through to the high school.
“The mission here for me and this program is pretty straightforward.  I serve as the conduit between the KGYAA youth football program and the high school program,” Estes said. “My charge is to get these young men accustomed to a whole new level of intensity and competition, put them in a position to be as successful as possible, and then graduate them to the next level.”
As far as his outlook for this season, Coach Estes acknowledges that while he has inherited a young team short on experience, he believes he does have the “skill to compete” and is pleased with the “new talent on board” as well.
Asked about his prospects this season, Coach Estes simply stated that he likes “stay away from making predictions” and that he and his team intend to “roll-up their sleeves, work extremely hard, and do everything possible to make this season a successful one.”   
King George Middle School opens their season on Wednesday, Sept. 2 at Floyd T. Binns Middle School. Binns accounted for the Foxes’ only loss last season.
